Looking for the perfect partner to build a premium line of watches, Filson called upon growing American watchmaker Shinola to help build a rugged collection of timepieces worthy of its name. The company will launch two case designs: The Mackinaw Field Watch and the travel-ready Journeyman which are hand-assembled at Shinola's factory in Detroit, Michigan.
You also can't make a Filson watch without tapping into their bank of rugged materials. Both pieces will be available with Bridle Leather and Dry Tin Cloth as well as Horween, nylon, and rubber. The watches are available for pre-order today and are set to ship in April 2015.
Pre-order the Journeyman and Mackinaw ($600-$1100) now at Filson.com.
